Today has been quite productive, out of the ordinary and fun!
I woke up at 7:15 with just enough time to get dressed, check email and pack a breakfast before I walked to the coffee shop to meet Victoria to study. It was such a gorgeous morning and walk!
I debated eating cereal or oatmeal (what I really wanted) but I knew I’d have to wolf it down and hate not being able to enjoy a meal! So I decided on a GH Cinnamon Raisin Bun with Almond Butter! Hidden in between were 3 walnut halves and a drizzle of honey as well. I toasted the bun, so the AB kind of melted on my way there
I also got a Cafe au Lait with Snickerdoodle coffee and soy milk.
I also packed a banana, which I saved for a late morning snack and ate around noon.
Totally not your typical KERF breakfast, huh! I really enjoyed the change of scenery though. And the bun held me over surprisingly well. But it was NOT as fun to eat as oatmeal.
Victoria and I were extremely productive in the morning hours and spent 3 of them going through our notes. I feel a lot better about this test, but I’ve still got a long ways to go.
As I said above, I ate my banana at noon and walked back home, dropped my bags, and went out for a run. I was expecting rain today since we’ve had rain for the past 4 days and was thrilled with blue skies (although there’s a strong wind out there). My 5.5 mile run was great. I was music and partnerless and I got lots of thinking done.
I came home to find Matt and his college fraternity buddy Waikart drinking on the patio!! There seems to be a heavy emphasis on beer this spring
Although I cannot lie – I had a few post-run sips of Maple Squirr-ale!
For lunch I ate a big salad
Leftover romaine, craisins + walnuts from last night plus sauteed broc, peppers, mushrooms, plus cottage cheese, sprouts, avocado and blueberries.
And a bunch of Food Should Taste Good multigrain chips. Loved them! They were like those flax corn chips I used to get a lot.
I am off to SHOWER and then study for the rest of the day.
